It’s been 20 years since Incubus came on the scene with “S.C.I.E.N.C.E..”
The alternative rock band celebrates with a new single and the announcement of a North American tour. The tour, which includes emo-rockers Jimmy Eat World and Judah and the Lion, hits 30 cities starting July 6 and stops in Fresno, Aug. 15 at Selland Arena. Tickets for the show are $46.75 (plus fees) and on sale 10 a.m. Friday at the arena box office, online at Livenation and ticketmaster or by phone at 800-745-3000.
While you wait, you can tune into radio New Rock 104.1. The station will be giving away tickets to the concert all week.
This is the first headlining tour Incubus has done in two years and the first time the band has played Fresno since 2011, when it stopped at Save Mart Center. The band’s latest single “Nimble Bastard” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock charts.
Jimmy Eat World was the emo pop-punk band for many who grew up the early 2000s. Last year, the band released “Integrity Blues” with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (who has worked with Paramore, M83 and others).
Judah and the Lion does “Folk Hop n’ Roll,” which is the name of its second album and an accurate description of what the band does. Some will remember the band from that time it opened for 21 Pilots at the Save Mart Center.
In other concert news of interest to slightly younger rock fans, pop-punk metal band A Day to Remember kicks of its just-announced tour July 29 at Fresno’s Woodward Park Amphitheater. Tickets for the show, which includes opening support from Moose Blood and Wage War, are $34.50 and on sale now. The band is touring in support of the album “Bad Vibrations,” which debuted No. 1 on Billboard’s Current Album chart (and No. 2 on the Top 200). If you recall, ADTR was in town last year, opening for Blink-182 at Save Mart Center.
